I read Young Adult books widely. I prefer from there fantasy, sci-fi, horror, speculative, fairy tales, and magic realism the most. I’m really down for anything with the right kind of character arcs, world-building, and subversions of expectations.
Despite my panache for all things fantasy, I tend to lean towards an askew “real” world in writing. Of course, most of my characters end up being young adults. I think it’s such a strange time in life that I can imagine more possibilities there. I’m currently working on a novel length YA story that weaves local lore and contemporary problems.
When not writing or reading, I am drinking coffee, thinking about what I am currently reading, plotting my latest work, listening to soundtrack music, or rewatching Game of Thrones.
